Help From Unexpected Places

Often we find something seemingly unrelated from our background which serves as help in our day to day quilting. For me, an English Lit. course in Shakespeare at Mt. A. many, many years ago has proven to be a valuable asset and one which I use everyday.
My huge Riverside Shakespeare edition is the perfect thickness to sit on at my sewing machine. William Shakespeare has helped me rise to great heights in my quilting...literally. : )
As he says in As You Like It Act 2, scene 7, 120–126 , "And therefore sit you down in gentleness, And take upon command what help we have That to your wanting may be minst'red."

    It's good to have an education that includes the classics and good literature.
